On this episode of The Chicago Edition podcast, I visit a new, and young Chicago singing talent, Alicia “Ya Yah” Townsend. Late last year Ya Yah dropped an incredible EP independently, titled “Just Me.” Although now currently living in California, it’s clear talking with her, her heart still lives in Chicago. We discuss the project in depth including how she decided which songs to leave on the EP, the process of choosing songs and identifying the songs that don’t work. “Just Me,” is Ya Yah’s first attempt at going solo, she describes the pro’s and con’s of being in a group versus being solo, what’s next for her and will she ever come back to Chicago? All that and more on this episode of The Chicago Edition.
